Description

There are striking similarities in containing a virus causing a pandemic, and containg and eliminating the defilements (kilesas) in our heart. Both are very subtle, difficult to see, and have pernicious consequences once they are allowed to spread unlimited.


Like we do testing to establish how far the virus has spread in the population, so we have to check our mind regularly to identify if any mindstates of anger, aversion, desire, or delusion have arisen. If there are any, they have to be isolated and contained, before they contaminate our mind all over.


However, we have to interpret the results with wisdom, in order to take the most appropriate measures to contain the virus/difilements.
